These bacon ranch chicken poppers are a savory and flavorful option for the perfect snack or an easy meal! They’re gluten-free, dairy-free paleo, whole30, and AIP.


  • 1 lb raw ground chicken (or turkey)
  • 2 cups raw shredded carrots
  • 3 slices raw bacon (sugar-free for whole30)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp dried parsley
  • 2 tsp dried chives
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried dill

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with parchment
  2. Add the shredded carrots to a food processor along with the bacon and blend on high. You want both the carrots and the bacon to be very finely shredded. Remove the carrots and bacon from the food processor and add to a mixing bowl
  3. Stir in the raw ground chicken (or turkey), seasoning, coconut oil, and flour and thoroughly combine
  4. Roll the mixture into small poppers and slightly flatten them (you’ll have 25-30 poppers)
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, flipping them halfway through. Place them under the broiler for 5 minutes to a crisp before serving if desired,
  6. Serve warm with compliant ranch dressing and enjoy!
